Season 23 Tier List: Solo Greater Rift Push Build Rankings
This page goes over the current state of each class in respect to their solo clearing capabilities and provides a full ranking of each build currently available on the site.
Top Solo Pushing Builds for each Class
With patch 2.6.7, several items that modify Rend were buffed, bringing forth this build as the top Barbarian build and one of the top S-Tier builds overall. In the past couple of seasons and on non-seasonal, this build has dominated the leader boards for Barbarian while also being relatively easy to play, making it an excellent build for players looking to pick up Barbarian for the first time. While the Leap-quake build did receive some buffs this patch, it is unfortunately not enough to come close to touching the Rend build. If you are a Barbarian, look forward to another season of spin-to-win.
After the changes in 2.6.7, two Crusader builds have dominated the solo ladder and are neck-and-neck for the top spot. The Thorns Bombardment Crusader utilizes the Bombardment skill along with the Akkhan's 6 piece bonus and the Invoker 2 piece bonus to utterly annihilate anything in its path, and is specifically quite strong for high-density maps. While it is quite formidable, the Heaven's Fury Crusader is still exceptional as well, but is at its best on elites and as a RGK. Both of these builds are S-tier for Season 23, giving you several strong options to choose from with the new leaderboard filtering.
In Patch 2.6.9, Demon Hunters gained the new Gears of Dreadlands set (GoD), which is based around using generators. The set, combined with some substantial buffs to supporting items has led to the Hungering Arrow generator build using the new set, which is far and away the strongest Demon Hunter build in the game. This build offers the highest baseline movement speed and a play-style similar to the Whirlwind or Rend Barbarian builds, which makes it great for both speed and pushing. While this build is receiving some nerfs in Season 23, it will remain the dominant Demon Hunter build for both group and solo play.
The best Monk build for season 23 will once again be the Tempest Rush build, specifically the Sunwuko variation or potentially the LoD variation. Tempest Rush has been the dominant monk build for multiple seasons since it was last buffed, and shows no signs of going anywhere. Until Monk receives some meaningful changes, Tempest Rush is here to stay.
While the Masquerade Necromancer set was added last season, it was too weak to see much play in the meta. In Season 22, however, Bone Spear received massive buffs, rocketing it straight on top of the meta. This build is incredibly satisfying to play, giving you reliable power from day 1 in both groups and solo, allowing you to speed farm and push all with a single build. This will once again be the best Necromancer build in Season 23, easily competing with other classes for the top clear overall.
Witch Doctors received some much-needed changes in Season 20 with the addition of the Mundunugu's Regalia set. This set uses Spirit Barrage to deal massive AoE damage, and has proven to be the most powerful Witch Doctor build to date by far, potentially being used in the group meta for non-seasonal as a trash clearing build. This build did receive some substantial nerfs in Season 21 by reclassifying the phantasms to not be pets anymore, but this build was already so far ahead of every other Witch Doctor build that it should have no trouble retaining its spot as the top pushing build for Witch Doctors. Nothing else comes close.
In Season 23, the Firebird's Finery set is being redesigned (see Patch 2.7). This new design has brought this set back from extinction, straight into the S-tier along with the best builds in the game. Both as a trash clearer and RGK, Firebird's is going to be a powerhouse in Season 23 for Wizards everywhere, and is likely to be the single most popular build in the new season. If you are looking for something new and great to try, look no further.
Full Build Tier List
The difference between the tiers below is roughly equal to 5 GR levels. Also remember that builds evolve and adapt, and the tier list below will almost certainly end up over or undervaluing some builds as they play out over the season. This list is by now means set in stone, and has plenty of room for change as we learn more about the new builds.
|Necromancer||Masquerade Bone Spear Necromancer|
|Wizard||Firebirds Flame Blades Wizard|
|Crusader||Aegis of Valor Heaven's Fury Crusader|
